There is also an annual fee associated with the permit, though day passes are available for those trying the park for the first time or travelers just passing through. You can find more information regarding this permit, the fee's required, or complete the application and have a permit sent to you through their website.
This park is perfect for those canines that like to run, canines that enjoy games like fetch or frisbee, or canines that have too much energy for the enclosed spaces provided by other off-leash dog parks. The off-leash section is grass and wide open fields. The grounds stay very well maintained, and the grass remains in good shape during the spring and summer months.
During the fall and winter months, the grass dies, but it does not usually get enough traffic to wear the ground down into the dirt. This means your canine will often leave these areas about as clean as they came. There is some seating available at the Currie Park Dog Exercise Area but no pavilions overhead to produce any reliable shade.
There are many trees at this park, but they are bunched up in some areas and do not provide a beautiful canopy of shade for a majority of the park. For the most part, you will be subjected to the wrath of the sun at this dog park. The Currie Park Dog Exercise Area makes for an exceptional place to bring a highly energetic canine that you have a hard time wearing out.
